PMO DEPOLOYEMENT , OPERATION, AND ENHANCEMENT
Your organization may continue to be challenged with the consistent application of defined processes within project management, resource planning, forecasting, and other demands in your business. A well-managed Project Management Office (PMO) can address these challenges in order to ensure a successful delivery of your projects.
We will work with you when you need to deploy a new PMO, operate a PMO, or optimize and enhance your existing PMO to meet a set of evolving challenges, functions, and services.
eSense Arabia provides a PMO's design and practice, bringing you the expertise and tools needed to help create and sustain a value-driven PMO. We regularly work with clients to deploy a new PMO, operate a PMO, or optimize and enhance an existing PMO to meet a set of evolving challenges, functions, and services.
Our processes are scalable and will accommodate PMOs at any level of your organization (enterprise, divisional, departmental, etc.) and at any level of a PMO's maturity.
A PMO's structure and processes are only part of the overall picture. It takes people to adapt to the cultural shifts that result and embrace a PMO's operations. We incorporate training, professional development, mentoring, and coaching, which are integral parts of making a PMO “stick” and become a valued organizational entity of your business.
Deploying a new PMO
The first step eSense Arabia takes in deploying a PMO is to assess your business's current environment and develop a roadmap for deployment that takes into account your organization’s culture and operating practices. We collaborate with you to identify, prioritize, and establish a set of the PMO's fundamental functions and services.
Deployment includes developing the PMO Charter and communications plan, identifying resource needs and performance measures, and incorporating the right amount of repeatable delivery processes to fit your culture. This improves the competencies of your staff through training and mentoring, and establishes standards for governance. The emphasis is on the PMO to provide a focus, within your organization, on improving the management of projects, programs, and portfolios.
Operating a PMO
If project management is not a core competency, consider outsourcing the PMO. eSense Arabia works in partnership with you to understand your goals and establish a structure that works to achieve these goals. We come equipped with a customizable toolkit of proven techniques and methodologies to plan, execute, monitor, measure, analyze, and report on your programs and projects in the PMO’s oversight.
Regular communication between the PMO's team and stakeholders is crucial to success and a core tenet of our PMO's operating model. Performance measures are collectively established upfront with you. Progress towards established goals is continually provided via quality reviews, status meetings, and daily interactions.
Our PMO's team can work onsite, at your location, remotely at one of our secure facilities, or a combination of the two, depending on your needs. You can rest assured that the PMO's operations will achieve their stated objectives and run seamlessly.
Enhancing an existing PMO
Once the PMO's fundamental functions are established and are running smoothly, the PMO is positioned to expand its charter and provide a more strategic leadership level of functionality and service offerings. A PMO's boundaries broaden beyond projects to cover complex portfolios that include non-project work needed to operate the business. The enhanced PMO, balances and manages the demand on resources. Across many organizations, PMOs take on the role of advocating their business unit's needs. PMOs, offering this level of service, govern with a focus, by senior management, on strategic issues and facilitate and manage change across your organization.
To take your PMO to the next level, PM Solutions will first review and evaluate your PMO's existing structure and current functions to recommend targeted enhancements. Based on these findings, we will provide a roadmap for transformation to expand the level of services offered by your PMO and organization's influence. Areas of focus for the transformation include the overall visibility and influence of the PMO, level of the PM's competency, optimization of the portfolio's resources, the management of demands of both project and operational work, and the facilitating of change within the organization.
eSense Arabia partners with you to make these transformations a reality within your organization. We baseline and measure performance, along the way, to make sure you have a PMO's framework that is agile enough to respond to your evolving demands of your business, yet disciplined enough to operate efficiently.
